I was so happy with this picture when I took it over four years ago! It's been my computer wallpaper for quite a while. I used my Cyber Shot camera on the macro setting and that's it. What a great little camera, I was sad when it died I can tell you. No enhancement on this at all. I love the shadow of the bee's wing on the flower.
Another flower picture for you. We have dogwoods in bloom right now here on Dogwood Lane so this is a treat after a cold winter. I was standing in the rain to take this picture and hoping that the wind would die down for just a minute! I bumped up the exposure a tiny bit and sharpened it a little using PicMonkey. The heart of the dogwood blossom, a cluster of flowers within a flower.
I'm a quilter so I'm obsessed with stitching and I'm passing along my obsession to you. I don't think you can fully appreciate why I took this picture unless you see the entire work so I must break the three photo rule and include photo number four of the complete stitched piece. This will be your fiber eye candy for the day.
